Capacity

With a capacity of 155 bottles, one short of 13 cases (you’ll need to drink one bottle the day you buy 13 cases to stock it up 🙂 ), the Edgestar CWR1551DZ is a great size for someone who has moved beyond casual collecting.

The shelves are spaced closely together and are a good size for storing Bordeaux style bottles.  You will need to remove a shelf to hold larger bottles such as Pinot Noir or Chardonnay, which will reduce your overall capacity.

The full size sliding shelves hold 11 bottles, and the half-shelf at the bottom holds 12 bottles stacked five over seven.  Several customers have commented that when you slide the bottom shelf out it will need support if it has 12 bottles on it, so be careful.

If you have a typical mix of standard and larger-sized bottles, expect capacity to be around 144 bottles (assumes one shelf removed to store 11 larger bottles).

The temperature range of the upper zone is 41 to 54 degrees, and the lower zone is 54 to 64 degrees.  If you just want to store wine, you could use both zones for red and white and set it to 54 degrees.  If you want to chill wine for drinking, you could store 77 standard sized white wine bottles in the upper zone, and 78 standard sized red wine bottles in the lower zone, and set each zone to a different temperature.

Zones

With dual cooling zones, the Edgestar CWR1551DZ is great for someone who wants to keep both white and red wine at a good temperature for storage or chilled for drinking.

EdgeStar CWR1551DZ Wine Refrigerator

Nice looking temperature controls but you do have to open the door to get to them.

Temperature Control

Temperature control is easy to use with a prominent and attractive digital temperature readout for each zone, with convenient up/down controls.

The controls are located inside the unit.  They are easy to read but you need to open the door to adjust them.

Reviewers report good temperature control.

Cooling

Compressor based cooling is low noise but not silent.  You can hear it in a silent room but customers report they soon grow used to it and don’t notice it anymore.  Expect some fan noise, and possibly some compressor noise when the cycle starts up.

The cooling range varies by zone.  The upper zone range is 41 to 54 degrees – good for white wine.  The lower zone range is 54 to 64 degrees, better for reds.

Large stainless steel handle looks sharp.

Fit and Finish

Customer Reviews

Customer reviews on various sites are quite favorable, very good to excellent.  The main problems have been with minor shipping damage, but the vendor has been prompt in fixing any issues.    Be aware that this is a 200 lb, full size refrigerator.  Most freight companies will deliver it to your curb or dock but you will need an appliance truck and some helpers to get it into place.

Warranty

One year limited manufacturer’s warranty.

Design

The reversible, locking door is a plus, and the tinted glass provides UV protection.  The main sliding shelves operate smoothly although they are spaced closely for Bordeaux bottles and you may experience some scratching of labels with the snug fit.  The bottom shelf should be supported better but if used with care it provides a good place to store larger bottles.

A carbon filter purifies air coming into the cooler, a plus if you have smokers in the house.

Wow Factor

The combination of stainless, glass and wood-front shelves gives this a classy look, and the blue LED lighting is an attention grabber.

The Edgestar CWR1551DZ is an attractive dual zone wine refrigerator with sliding shelves and a locking, reversible stainless steel and tinted glass door.  It has digital temperature control with a nice LED readout and compressor-based cooling.  The upper and lower zones have different temperature ranges – you can store 77 standard sized white wine and 78 standard sized red wine bottles chilled for drinking (whites colder than reds), or any mix of red and white for storage at 54 degrees.  It can be built-in or freestanding.
